Ipswich Town has today announced that Simon Clegg is to stand down from his position as the club’s chief executive after nearly four years.
As part of a strategy to meet the financial challenges of the Financial Fair Play rules, Marcus Evans, the club’s owner, and other members of the Board will be taking a more hands-on approach to the day-to-day management of the club.
Mr Evans said that over the last four years Mr Clegg had done an outstanding job as the public face of the club.
Mr Clegg said owner Marcus Evans intends to take a more "hands-on" role at the club.**
Mr Clegg who previously worked for the British Olympic Association will return to his family in Surrey and intends to look for a new professional challenge in international or domestic sport.
